Skirted Heifer's Hangover burger.
Congratulations to Suzette Megyeri, co-owner of Skirted Heifer
and Bambino's Urban Pizzeria
, and Kevin Megyiri, sole owner of the upcoming northeastern Skirted Heifer location
. On January 2, the mother-son team took home first place on Food Network TV show Guy's Grocery Games
. Their episode served as the first part of a four-episode "DDD Family Tournament," featuring family duos from restaurants previously featured on host Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
TV show, which featured Skirted Heifer in 2015. As a result of their win, they were invited back to compete in a final round of competition against the winners from the other two preliminary episodes, which will air on January 9 and 16.
“We were super-excited that we got to go out again," says Suzette. Food Network recorded the tournament in May, so while the Indy
doesn't know how the Megyeris will fare in the final round — Hollywood non-disclosure agreements are nothing to test idly — they've already competed. The rest of the world will find out how they fared when the final round airs on January 23.
That said, they've already taken home $10,000 in prize money, which Suzette says will go to Kevin to help with the new Skirted Heifer. She tells us that while construction on the spot continues, they anticipate getting cleared to start decorating and stocking in early February. They plan to hold multiple soft opening days before their grand opening, tentatively set for February 11.
